the dead/jerry did more than the average joe will ever know for the sake of live music, performance, is easy to forget that they werent fitting into an established structure like LOLAPALOOSER or any of your run o the ill XGAMES associated BUDWISER sponsored cavalcades -- the well oiled publicity/marketing-tie in shite that drives todays music scene (at least as far as gigs that draw in the 5,000 + range go)

anyway, the dead and their peeops invented this shit, putting on shows, INDEPENDENT STYLE, ANNNNND the SOUND SYSTEMS....all of it...and yet they were ROOT DOWN at the same time....

i get your drift BRYAN E....i know the vibe you are feeling....for sure. another facet to the personality of the band that we all love -- THEY KNOW THEY'RE BADASS -- OK OK so i am a sad little deadhead but in all of their UTTER DORKINESS -- they are far and away the coolest, hipper-than-shit-most rock band EVER -- again...there is no comparrison, just by the shear fact that THEY DID IT BETTER, THEY DID IT FOR LONGER, THEY DID IT MORE OFTEN, THEY TOOK MORE CHANCES, THEY SIGNIFICANTLY RE-INVENTED THEMSELVES NUMEROUS TIMES,....AND REPEATED THEMSELVES LESS.....

sure sure...maybe the stones have played Jumpin Jack Flash fewer times than the dead played dark star -- but what the fuck is that?

HELL YEAH JERRY WAS PLEASED WITH HIMSELF! he was jerry......the coolest motherf&c&er this side of jack kerouac, cassidy, kesey and the whole damn BUS.
